Wetlands & Streambanks

We are always looking for beneficial plants, which will grow in shaded areas...it will also grow in full sun...

American Germander (Teucrium canadense)...also called wood sage...part of the mint family, Lamiaceae,is such a plant...

This native wildflower is a summer blooming,  perennial forb/herb with conspicuous cream to pink or purple flowers...It is adapted to medium to fine textured soils ( part of mine is sandy ) and prefers moist soils...Seed is round and brown...Where I hand-harvested seed, the plants were 1' to 3' tall...

Hummingbirds, butterflies, skippers, moths, flies, bees, and wasps are all attracted to this wildflower...

A packet of 50 seeds is avail. for $10 which includes shipping and handling...See address on web-site...Send a check and your return address...
